It’s Mash-Up Movie Time — Remix Culture and Copyright Law

Siouxsie is a big fan of remix culture.

Below is the documentary Walking on Eggshells:  Borrowing Culture in the Remix Age. Jacob Albert, Ryan Beauchamp and Brendan Schlagel made the documentary for a Yale seminar on Intellectual Property in the Digital Age.  They say:

Walking on Eggshells”is a 24-minute documentary about appropriation, creative influence, re-use and intellectual property in the remix age. It is a conversation among various musicians, visual artists, writers and lawyers, all sharing their views on why and how we use and create culture, and how intellectual property law, originally designed to provide people with incentives to create, sometimes hinders creative production far more than it enhances it.

So get out your popcorn, and enjoy:
